Here's my Australia Day banner entry...

All photos are my own, except the image of Sir Henry Parkes.

I tried to create a banner which expressed the greatest achievement in our nation's history - federation. Hence I have a picture of Sir Henry Parkes, the Father of Federation looking across to Parliament House in Canberra, the beating heart of our nation. This is followed by the Coat-of-Arms, another symbol of achivement and unity. The banner finishes with a picture of Melbourne which represents both the past and present - a past national capital and a thriving city of national and world standing.

I am keen to receive your feedback, and I hope you like my work.

Cheers,
The Olderfleet

Quite good!

I think Sir Henry Parkes looks a little out of place, also that is the spot where the SkyscraperCity logo will go so might not quite work there?? I noted your comment on fading the images together in the one I did, prehaps fading the picture of melbourne and canberra together with the coat of arms over the join would work better? I'm not really sold and the bluey/reddish area behind the coat of arms. But I like the idea, I might do another and borrow it ;)

Nice work all up.

Eww Parkes.

Australia Day has nothing to do with the Fed.
